Photo of the Week: Tail Up

10-29-2012 // NWF Staff

Cedar Waxwing on Crabapple

Cara Litberg was photographing a large flock of cedar waxwings feeding on crabapples in the Chicago Botanic Gardens in Glencoe, Illinois. One bird reached way down, making his tail go way up and providing a very different feeding shot for the Chicago resident. “It reminds me of the little drinking bird toys, the ones that dip up and down on a pivot,” she says. Litberg used a Canon EOS Rebel XSi and a 300mm lens.
